Attendees at the June luncheon meeting learned about the future of work from Fred Stahl, DC LERA past president and author of Worker Leadership: Americaís Secret Weapon in the Battle for Industrial Competitiveness and a co-author of Lean Enterprise Value: Insights from MITís Lean Aerospace Initiative.


As a Boeing Company executive he was the corporate Chief Scientist for Europe and the Director of Production Transition.  Stahl was an early leader in the Lean Aerospace Initiative, a research project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and later its executive director.
